Two New Nikon Nikkor Z Lenses

 By Ryley Smith

 

We love a new lens announcement, but do you know what makes it even better? When we have two lens announcements! Yes, Nikon has announced two new additions to the Z Nikkor lens line-up. Extremely different but equally outstanding, the new Nikkor Z 85mm f1.2 S and the new Nikkor Z 26mm f2.8mm! The portrait-perfect Z 85mm f1.2 S gives users a classic view with an exotic aperture, ideal for photo and video pros shooting portraiture, weddings, maternity, high fashion and boudoir. The slim and light Z 26mm f2.8mm is a pancake prime born for the streets, transforming the users’ camera into the smallest version of itself, encouraging users to shoot in more places, more often. Both lenses are incredibly exciting for very different reasons!
